I used
/dev/sda1        /mnt/ntfs0     ntfs-3g     fmask=111,dmask=000 1   0
/dev/sda2        /mnt/ntfs1     ntfs-3g     fmask=111,dmask=000 1   0
which is pretty much the same as yours. Since I use other software that requires the password prompt, I was looking for a universal solution so I used the method luvr posted. As I said, all the methods worked. There is more than one way to skin a cat!!!

@ Petri Kaukasoina & luvr

# Administrator user group, used to match @SYSTEM in cupsd.conf policy rules...
# This cannot contain the Group value for security reasons...
SystemGroup sys root
I changed SystemGroup sys root to SystemGroup sys root users and the password prompt went away. Thanks guys, you all been really helpful.
